Getting Started with React

This chapter describes the basics of React programming. We will cover the skills that are required to create basic functionalities for our React frontend. In JavaScript, ­we use the ECMAScript 2015 (ES6) syntax because it provides many features that make coding cleaner.

In this chapter, we will look at the following topics:

  • Creating React components
  • Useful ES6 features
  • JSX and styling
  • Props and state
  • Conditional rendering
  • React hooks
  • The Context API
  • Handling lists, events, and forms with React
